This is the master bedroom BEFORE (aka when the old owners lived here, circa 2007). The walls were a nice warm wheat color, but the ceiling was a darker green that we didn't like.
We took down that
Here you get to see that lovely white bathroom tile fireplace surround that I
Since we moved in we've painted the bedroom (twice). The ceiling is now Pratt and Lambert Silver Lining (aka WHITE) and the walls are Pratt and Lambert Gunnel. I love love love this color. It is the perfect bluish-grayish-greenish. We also switched out all the door hardware from brass to oil rubbed bronze (in the master bedroom and bathroom alone there are five doors!), and changed out the carpet.
I don't really like these curtains and actually today (after I took these photos) I bought some new ones at target that look kind of like burlap. I think I like them, but they still aren't long enough, so I'm debating if I should maybe get those little curtains rings to hang them with instead, which would add a couple of inches, which could be perfect. (Edited to add: Done!)
Yes, the tile is still there. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with it! But I switched out the large bookcase that was in that funky cubby with a smaller dresser and I like it much better. How about you? (Click here to remember what it looked like before).
We moved the bookcase over here and made a little sitting area. Somebody help me with what to do with all those cords? Maybe don't buy open side tables? Ooops.

PS Notice that that is CARPET on the floor. IN THE BATHROOM! Gross.
Hey! there's me! Before I got a big girl camera. And OMG, is that Chris' PHONE in a nerdy phone holder? HAHAHA!
When we moved in we (Chris) painted the bathroom an "oatmeal" color, but just last week we (our friend and painter, Dan) painted it my favorite Pratt and Lambert Gunnel (same as the bedroom). I love how it looks like a spa.
I've never been in that tub.
We added knobs to the cabinets. I would LOVE to change out that
No more carpet! We replaced the carpet with tile. Well, we hired somebody else to do it, because we are not that DIY. (Even though sometimes we pretend). I plan to change out the green towels with white, to go along with the spa theme. And because I like buying new towels.
Dan forgot to paint the little room with the toilet when he was here last week, so it is still the oatmeal color. But now I'm thinking I kind of like the contrast. What do you think?
So there you have it! What do you think? Anything you love? Anything you'd suggest I do differently?
